Martini Girls Have Fun

Afternoon Everyone,
Here is a card I have made today for a couple of challenges. The card is made using an A4 card blank folded in half to create A5 size, in baby pink card. The card was then covered with a cream and pink backing paper, then an additional piece of complementary backing paper was added in creams and brown, to pull out the cream flower topper. This backing paper was mounted onto the same baby pink card as the card blank, on both off the backing paper and baby pink card all the corners have been rounded off. The topper has been cut using a cut from the nestabilities range, the pink is a deeper shade of pink then the backing paper, to "show" off the topper. The image is a digital image that I have had for about a year now, which has been printed using a laser printer (which is best as the ink doesn't bleed as bad as an ink jet) The topper was then cut using the a smaller nestabilitie, and then coloured in using promarker pens. I picked a pink to complement the colours off the card and backing sheets. I have handmade the six flowers that are on the card, and each flower has a small pearl in the centre, to create the finished look with the flowers I have used my Cricut Create machine and the Wild Cart Cartridge to cut the dark green leaves out and the pink swirls. To finish the card off I have put a small swirl onto the bottom off the card and attached a pink bow with pearls on to the swirl, added a few swipes off clear glitter pen to the glass to give the illusion that the glass is shiny, and to her lips to create the feel off lip gloss on. Then a sentiment topper saying "On your special day" was added, I went for a simple topper so that the card could be used for numerous occasions.
